Two people were sent to hospital on Monday morning after a collision on Ring Road.

Regina police were called to the area of Ross Avenue and Ring Road where a Honda Civic hit a courier truck. Both vehicles ended up in the ditch.

Once police arrived, there was already a man trying to speak with the female passenger of the vehicle. Another man came up to the officer and identified himself as an off-duty firefighter.

Neither the driver-side or passenger doors of the Civic could be opened. An officer used his baton to break the rear window of the car, and with help from the other men, stabilized the occupants until Regina Fire and Protective Services and EMS could extract them and get them into ambulances.

The two people in the Civic a 37-year-old male and a 36-year-old female were brought to hospital with serious injuries.
